This is my upper lip covered in dirt from volunteering at Lynchburg Grows. If my mustache at the end of the month is half of this I'll be happy.
Thacher Jennings here. Mustaches have never been my specialty. In fact, I don't get much facial hair up there at all. Most of my hair is on my head, and even that's starting to fall out. I'm a 26 year old ex-college athlete who has quit the gym and started down the path towards the "dad bod." I'm hoping that growing a mustache throughout November, and helping to raise money to help the local kids in my area will reawaken the kid in me as well.
I've never participated in M4K before, but I'm very excited to jump in and do what I can for the excellent charities that we represent.
The image here is of me after sifting dirt all morning at Lynchburg Grows, and I was covered in dust. Some of that dirt collected on the fuzz that sits atop my upper lip, and it's about the closest I've ever come to having a mustache. By the time the month is over, I can only hope that my mustache will have come in halfway as decent as the dust and dirt did that morning. But, as someone once told me in regards to M4K "the creepier the better," and I'm sure that if nothing else, I will have lived up to that expectation.
In all seriousness, though, any donation, no matter how small, is going to go to great causes in our local Lynchburg area, and I urge you to give what you can to help the children in our area grow and develop into remarkable and successful adults. If wearing a crusty mustache on my face for a month can help support the kids, then I am all for it!
Thank you for considering a donation and for taking interest in the great cause that is Mustaches 4 Kids!
